All the really cool kids are doing it!

Create your own Music List @ HotFreeLayouts!

Yes, yes, I finally gave in. I was inspired by going through my music...and it is strangely addictive once you start. They are in a very rough order.

I just have to share, before I move on to my C section (hee, hee!), that I love where I live now. I went out tonight with Weenut (AKA SFBette). We had dinner and fabulous conversation at this place called Chow, in SF. Then I took MUNI to BART and got to my station...and on my 10 minute walk home from there, I could stop at the store to pick up some allergy medication. It's so convenient. It's lovely.

Okay, then, as if the gallery above was not overwhelming enough...it's on to the Cs:

Zoot Suit Riot, Cherry Poppin' Daddies - great dancing music.
Tears of Stone, The Chieftains
Tubthumper, Chumbawamba - I just can't give up this CD.
Unplugged, Eric Clapton - while not normally a Clapton fan, I really love this recording.
Clannad Greatest Hits, Clannad - I seem to have been going for a British influence in the Cs.
Congreso Bacardi de la Salsa, various artists - okay, not British...I bought this after taking a salsa class so that I could practice. I don't listen to it often...it feels like the sort of thing to listen to when it gets hot and muggy outside - and that so rarely happens here.
One O'Clock Jump, Count Basie - brilliant musician.
A Crash Course in Roses, Catie Curtis - WritinginAK turned me on to this performer. I love her voice.
My Shirt Looks Good on You, Catie Curtis

Today was a good, if somewhat non-productive day. The best part, of course, was having dinner with a friend. Hope your day was good as well...and please keep those suggestions on what's missing in my collection coming. I'm taking notes.

Cake! I love that song "Going the Distance" - also I'm not surprised about Clannad - my friend Carmen (aka Rocker Chick) that came in Nov. turned me onto them even though I don't have any of their stuff - beautiful music!

I quite like your taste in music thanks for the preview.

SwissToni said...

are Clannad British or Irish? It might not seem like a big distinction to be making, but it definitely is!

ST - you are most porbably correct that they are Irish. I tend to not know exactly where the distinction lies.

Clearlake, Coldplay & Crowded House
